:: Snow Conditions & Info
Back Corries fantastic with a foot + of fresh on top of old base and skiing nicely all the way to the Bheart. Cornices were absent and though snow hard just after drop in it quickly sweetened up. This merited 2 runs. Time to have a look further round I though on exiting Chancer but conditions deteriorating but thinking it was a shower I had couple of goes on Summit run on which cover was excellent and snow good. Realising it wasnt going to clear I skied the Goose down with big drifts of snow down to T4 and no rock problems. Snow remained good to top of Alpha and just about made it back to the Gondola with skis on but rapidly thinning last few hundred feet. Top of the mountain has got good cover and even Warrens has caught plenty of snow.
